warspite1 -> TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (6/25/2017 11:13:30 AM)

It looks like the 4-player Games 1 and 2 will shortly be underway again (MadEX and bugs permitting).

As Games 3 and 4 never got off the ground we are putting them on hold for the moment and mixing up teams for the new Games 3 and 4.

Exact rules (likely to be similar to before) and who is who, within each team, are yet to be agreed but the line up will be:


United Kingdom vs The Nordic's

AllenK----------Mayhemizer
warspite1--vs--Orm

This thread will be for the use of Team UK (and anyone wishing to follow us). The Nordic's will have their own version.

Game 3 will feature us as the Axis
Game 4 will feature us as the Allies

Well, my dear old thing, before they ring the bell for play and the umpires appear on the pitch, over which squadron of pigeons are doing their best imitation of the Red Arrows, I do believe a certain tradition must be honoured.

Absolutely old boy. Good work, what? Fancy a nice cuppa?




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (6/25/2017 12:25:06 PM)

That would be splendid.

Perhaps it's time to let our listeners gain a modicum of insight into our plans.

For the Axis game, Warspite1 will take on Italy and Japan, while I play Germany.

For the Allied game, Warspite1 will play USSR, France and Communist China whilst I shall endeavour to manage CW (and all those convoys!), USA and the Nationalist.

You mean we're going to have a plan? Ooh I say, how exciting. I vote we take on the evil Bosch and make them sorry they ever made war on us, catch them with their trousers down and give them six of the best, what?... Them and their fascist bully boy friends too.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (6/25/2017 12:33:53 PM)

I used "plan" in its loosest possible sense with a healthy dose of artistic licence thrown in.

What do we do when we're the Boche and associated Bully Boys? A spot of self-flagellation?

warspite1

Oh... I hadn't really thought about that [:(]. Perhaps we could agree not to invade Poland and return Bohemia and Moravia to Slovakia and in return for which we get some preferential economic rights, a few colonies and the Versailles Treaty formally torn up? All settled over a nice cup of tea and a slice of Mrs Miggins Victoria Sponge?

It'd be a bit of a short game.

Our empire should last 1000 years (or at least that's probably what it will seem like to the long-suffering listeners).

Well yes, but it would be a spiffing wheeze as it would totally wrong-foot our opponents.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (6/25/2017 5:00:20 PM)

Well old bean, do you want to open diplomatic niceties?

Or how about, you do that and then, for a jolly little jape, I invade anyway? It'll have them rolling in the aisles.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/21/2017 7:42:38 PM)

Well my dear old thing, I'm going to get Game 4 started and was wondering whether dear Uncle Joe wanted to lend-lease any of his bombers to the Chinese.

On the subject of Uncle Joe, is he contemplating any unpleasantness in either the European or Pacific theatres that might influence where the US prioritises its diplomatic formalities (US Entry Chits)?




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/21/2017 8:08:33 PM)

I'll let you have my allied set up tomorrow evening. I was thinking of trying for peace in the Far East (definite) and an attack on Iran first off - but I'm not wedded to that if you had any preference otherwise?




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 4:13:30 PM)

Game 3

I guess Italy and Japan may have some naval moves to do, so I'll leave it you to start the impulse.

Germany is going land. I'm not sure but I think I may be able to get reasonable odds attacks on both Warsaw and Lodz this impulse.




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 4:32:35 PM)

Why has Orm left Turin open in Game 4?????




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 4:52:53 PM)

And why leave a 1 point AA in the most vulnerable Maginot hex???

warspite1

Okay I will start this in about an hour I think. The plan will be to stay neutral for the Italians and to try and be aggressive with the Japanese - I may do a Land actually with them.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 6:05:03 PM)

Turin and that Maginot line hex will likely get some of the reserves when they are called out.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 6:28:06 PM)

Apologies, just clicked into Orm and yours TOP SECRET thread. From the brief glimpses I got of a couple of posts you can safely be reassured I didn't glean anything from it.

Hit the Chinese hard from the off. I like it.




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 6:39:42 PM)

I've started the war - how do you want to play this in terms of who does what? Orm and I normally cut the impulse in two and we post our moves from the part we are not orchestrating to the other.

Is that how you do it or more granular? I've just realised I don't know what you want to do re Port Attacks, Naval Air etc etc!!




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 7:11:23 PM)

As Germany, I don't anticipate much naval action, so I'll post instructions to you for those phases where I do send out subs or ships and let you do the movements and run the combats. We may need some checking on targeting and losses. Ground strike phase I'll try and post instructions as well.

It's really the land movement phase where I'll need to take over the file once you've done the Italians and Japanese.

Working through the combat phases will be best done by whoever has the most going on. We'll need to let each other know what ground support and escort is intended.

For this impulse.

No port attacks.

Naval Air - Fly the HE-112 to the North Sea 2-box.

Ground strikes -5 factor Stuka on Warsaw and 4 factor Stuka on Lodz.

1 air move kept in reserve in case Ju-52 needed for reorg.




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 7:13:08 PM)

.





AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 7:19:02 PM)

Looks like you are around, so I suggest you run the game up until you've done your land movement then send the file to me.

Edit: Just seen you've edited the above post and are carrying on.




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 7:47:16 PM)

For Game 4: UK vs Nordic 2, with me playing CW/US, I suggest I drive the game up until land movement and then hand over to you once I've done mine. I'll just need some instructions for French naval movement and any air missions.




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 8:21:08 PM)

Where do you want the Stukas re-based to?

Edit: To keep the game moving I will re-base west if I can or a place of safety if not.

Works for me.




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 8:52:54 PM)

Umezu will not take part in the attack. This should still give enough for 4:1 because of fractionals, butinclude the NAV bomber just in case please.
If I get stuffed, reorganise the three best Corps (all south of the river) and return the aircraft to the hex with the 20th Army on it.

Thanks




AllenK -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 10:02:30 PM)

1 short of avoiding disorganisation. Do you still want Umezu to reorg the best 3?

Yes please - and can you move one of the units in the south into the city (don't bother changing it if you have already moved someone else - so long as no disorganised aircraft is left unattended!).




warspite1 -> RE: TOP SECRET: AllenK and warspite1 ONLY!!!! (8/26/2017 10:08:46 PM)

A little unlucky on the dice front there I felt - 2, 4, 5 and 9 - although good enough for our immediate purposes I guess. Shame following up that success is now a tad more difficult.
